Scale and Ambition: AJ Small Projects Award hits Bristol
The AJ’s touring Small Projects exhibition has opened at the Architecture Centre in Bristol
The free exhibition, which occupies the recently renovated ground floor space of the Architecture Centre, demonstrates that high quality of architecture can can be achieved on a tight budget. The shortlisted projects, which range from a mobile sauna to a bird hide, were all achieved for less than £250,000.
Unfortunately for the south-west based architecture centre only one project, Mitchell Taylor Workshop’s Blundell Avenue, can claim a a local connection. However, with the 2013 Small Projects Awards opening for entries in October maybe this will be rectified in next year’s awards.
To coincide with the exhibition the winning and commended practices will each present their work and participate in a discussion, chaired by Keith Bradley, on the relationship between scale and ambition for architects in today’s economically challenging times on Tuesday 11 September at the Architecture Centre.
